Santa Cruz Bicycles was founded in 1993 in a space the size of a single car garage in the Seabright Cannery, in Santa Cruz California. Their first bike, the Tazmon, was a single pivot dual suspension bike that rattled established sensibilities and helped define their ethos of “simply advanced.” That bike was the cornerstone for a brand that was founded on the notion of doing things originally in order to build the best.
Santa Cruz now manufacture s16 models of mountain bike which includes a full women’s Juliana range. Made from either carbon fiber or aluminum, they cover everything from hardtails to 8.5″ travel downhill machines. They offer two suspension technologies; efficient single-pivot designs on certain aluminium bikes, and their advanced VPP (Virtual Pivot Point) technology on all high end models. VPP bikes are available with a wide range of component and suspension options to choose from, each hand-assembled to order in a California factory. Every Santa Cruz bike is the distillation of a desire to ride and build the highest performance mountain bikes in the world. No more, no less.
